This is such a quick and easy card to create, I used a ½” sponge dauber to apply the blues and the dauber marks are intentional to add texture. Then using a regular sponge I applied the black to the top and side edges. Next I stamped on the image, tore a piece of paper in half and masked off the sky while lining the paper up to the ground portion of the image and used the direct to paper technique to apply the ground and the panel is ready to assemble. You could easily create this panel in about five minutes.
The envelope is done is the same manner as the card and took me all of about three minutes.
The triangles are cut with the Stampin Up photo corners punch, glued together and timed to a smaller size.
The nailheads were attached with Aleene’s Paper Glaze.

I wondered what you would do for this challenge. You are the queen of decorating envelopes. I am always amazed at what you do!!!!! This scene on your card as well as your envelope is stunning. I can just feel that cool evening mist blowing around the tree. There is a tree by my work that always seems to have mist by it in the early evening. Your card made me think of it.
